English term or phrase: suicide drag
again, to do with horses. Term used to describe a very dangerous trick riding figure where the rider is attached only by his feet to the horse and saddle while the rest of his body is hanging on the side of the horse -dragging- and his hands are touching the ground. Is there an expression in Portuguese?
